    They announced today that Jim Vaughn will take over for Rob from 5-6:30 with Wendy Davis and Rick Holmes will take the 10 and 10:30 spots with Wendy.

    Sounds like Jim wants to be the main anchor but not come in at night. Not a fan of this setup.


    They should’ve given either the 6 or the noon to Jim & Melanie. Seems like the morning crew does 5 hours plus Jaciel at noon, and Rob and Wendy 2.5 hours, while Jim & Melanie just an hour. Not sure why they have a separate anchor at 8pm either. Just seems like it’s not the best use of your resources.

    GMA has gotten decisively worse each year for the last few years. 

    The first 15 minutes of the show are typically pretty good but today at 7:16 they did a report on a Taylor Swift concert in London. The show is dog sh*t these days.

    Obviously, this is your opinion only, as most Americans prefer GMA as evidenced by the ratings.

    Except Al Roker decided in 2000, to switch over completely to network he had been doing 5 and 6 while Janice did 11pm so he could do the today show. But he stop doing WNBC in full on February 17, 2000.

    He was only doing the 5pm. Janice handled the 6 and 11.

    It's a certainty that GMFB will be on the MyNetworkTV O&Os and KICU in the Bay Area.  In Fox's "single" markets (Atlanta, Tampa, Austin, Detroit, Philadelphia), I can't see those stations cramming in GMFB alongside their "Good Day Wherever" newscasts and their usual daytime block of talk, TMZ, more news, and game shows.

    It does mention it would be a 2 hr extension of the current show which will continue to air on NFL Network. So the earliest it could run on the affiliates is 10am-12noon, so it’s not out of the question for it to be on after Good Day.

    Who really wants to see Washington State and Oregon State play each other for 13 straight weeks? Geez.

    They only play each other once. The rest are for their remaining home games against other teams.

    In reality, this wisp of a conference has a scheduling alliance with the Mountain West and will be eligible for their championship game. (Just making sure everybody's on the same page as to the actual contents of this TV package.)

    They are not eligible for their championship game.

    Due to a mets game airing in San Francisco from 9:30-12:30, there is no late edition of news scheduled for after the game. I think this has happened before on WNYW where they didn't air news after very late games ending after midnight?

    Surprised they didn’t opt to do a newscast at 9 instead of a pregame.

    I believe the reason was the coverage of the attacks in Tel Aviv. WABC already pulls its main anchors to anchor at 11pm when there is something urgent happening. (I've already seen Mike Marza with Chanteé Lans, Sandra teaming up again with Joe Torres and in the new year, there was Liz Cho)

    Seems so as Pedro was on at 6 by himself. As much as I admire Bill and as hard of a worker as he is, he should’ve not been brought in, as he was too close to the story, and it showed. On Saturday they were doing a story on how Trump was using the situation to fundraise, and Bill added in his own commentary. And I say this as someone who is not a fan of Trump.

    I'm assuming Lee was there because Dani was off that Saturday and Jeff was filling in for her Sunday morning

    Brittany did Sat AM and Lee did Sat PM. Jeff did AM and PM on Sunday. I’m assuming it’s because Dani and Jeff did a lot of heavy lifting during the week while Lee and Brittany were covering the eclipse, and those two got a break when they returned.


    They really should bring in another meteorologist full time - perhaps Raegan Medgie.


    Lee - 5,6,11

    Jeff - Noon, 4

    Brittany - Mornings, 10am

    Dani - Weekend Evenings

    Raegan - Weekend Mornings


    Sam could continue as a features anchor on weekday mornings and 10am as his schedule permits and do some of the weather hits.

    When was the last time Sam Champion was on EWN This Morning? He’s been on GMA as a 6th host since early March with Brittany and Dani handling 4:30-7am. Not sure if he’s been on 10am but when I’ve tuned in it’s typically Dani.

    It seems that Sam makes his own schedule. 

    On another note, Bill and Pedro co-anchored Saturday at 11pm with Lee doing weather.

    With Dana Tyler's time at CBS2 coming to a close.  Hopefully this isn't goodbye for Dana, assuming she decides to show up at one of the competing NYC stations (NBC4, FOX5, ABC7, or PIX11) for I believe she's got a few more years left in reporting news.  Wishing Dana all the best.

    None of those places have weekday openings. WABC has not replaced Sandra on weekends, and I’m not convinced they’re going to.


    I’m probably in the minority here, but what has she done in all those years to move the needle at WCBS? She hasn’t always seemed like the easiest to work with. I’m fairly confident her anchoring days are done. Regardless of my thoughts on her, she’s had a long career with the same employer and many accomplishments, she should enjoy retirement. No matter how great of a career, there’s no need for people to be anchoring into their 80s (I’m looking at you Chuck).

    The Saturday morning news was hosted by Tim McNichols and Jennifer Bisram

    Dave Carlin and Jennifer Bisram today, although Dave’s Instagram indicates he’s filling in for Doug.

    Bill Ritter doing the Sunday 11pm news tonight. He wasn't on at 6. Can't be because of high viewership, since ABC didn't have the Super Bowl. I'm assuming that WCBS will have their regular weekday crew when their news finally comes on (update - they are).

    Who did the 6pm?

  12. 3 hours ago, MorningNews said:

    Marza filled in at 11pm a few weeks ago. Sandra is doing 5 and 11pm as Sade’s fill in, with Lauren anchoring at noon. I’d guess David will join Sandra on Fridays at 11pm until Sade returns. 

    Pedro Rivera debuted on the weekend morning news today. 

    Is Bill no longer doing Fridays at 11pm?

    I thought that Dateline moved to the NBC O&O in LA? I didn't know it was still on the Fox O&O MyNet TV in LA.

    It’s part of MyNetTV’s network primetime lineup. The NBC O&Os have it as part of their daytime syndication package.
